  1. fruity yeast strains

    What yeast strain do people like for fruity esters for bourbon and or malt whiskey?
  2. White Labs is happy to announce that we now carry AB Biotek's Pinnacle dry distiller's yeasts in 500g packages. We offer two strains currently: Pinnacle Distillers Yeast (G) is an active dried yeast well-suited for use in simultaneous saccharification fermentations of starch substrates from grain. It has a high tolerance to liberated glucose. Pinnacle Distillers Yeast (M) is an active dried yeast well-suited for use in malt-based fermentations. It rapidly consumes maltose and produces a flavorful spirit.

  4. Schizosaccharomyces pombe

    Anyone had any experience using Schizosaccharomyces pombe? Anyone know where to source it? I'm curious to try a few experiments!
  5. fermentation

    Hello, I have a fermentation predicament I was hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on. So I wanted to try and make a base for my Gin. The plan was to make 1000 liters/265 gallons with a mash bill of 225kg / 500lbs of malted barley, 50kg / 110lbs of malted wheat and 25kg / 55lbs of malted rye. Cooking times and temps were no different then when I make a beer. Before I went over to the boil my SG was 1.070. I boiled for only 10 mins and then into the fermenter it went. I cooled it down to about 14c / 57f. Normally a beer wouldn't be that cold but its winter down here in Chile and the tap water through the heat exchanger was super cold. I want to try a new yeast. It's supposed to be this "super yeast" because it will ferment at temps ranging from 10-25c / 50-77f and an alcohol tolerance of 16% or more. It is called EC-1118 and I pitch 500grams although I only really needed 250g....according to the packaging. The tank temp stayed around 14c / 57f for a week. After a week the bubbling had stopped. I checked the SG and I was at 1.024 or 6%abv. I was hoping the super yeast would be giving me 9%... So, blew CO2 into the bottom of the tank to pick up all the yeast that had settled, heated the tank up to a temp of 18c / 64f and let it sit for another week. The temp eventually went back down but never got below 10c / 50f. Today, a week later I checked the SG and I'm still at 1.024. The yeast is known to work at temps ranging from 10-25c / 50-77f so I don't get it. Does anyone have any experience with EC-1118 or any ideas to what might have happened? Also, How would I go about restarting it? EC-1118 is a "killer yeast" which I have never used before, but it's supposed to kill other yeast that might be present. So, I'm thinking it could be an issue if I pitch another yeast strain... What do you think? Thanks in advance!
  6. Looking for some kluyveromyces fragilis/marxianus to process some whey. Does anyone have some, or know where to source? I just need a little, I can culture it :-) Thanks! Dan
  7. Keeping Fermenters Warm

    How are you keeping your fermentors warm during this cold winter? Most yeasts are effective at temps between 68° and 88° so with temperatures in the sub 20 range I am concerned about slowing down or stopping fermentation.
  8. We are closing out our stocks of Fermentis Red Star Yeast which is a great yeast for producing bourbon, rye whisky, malt whisky, etc... The yeast is packaged in 10 kg sachets and each is available for $85 (+ shipping) which equates to $3.86 per pound. If you have been buying this yeast in the small, 500 gram packets, this pricing offers a substantial savings as this would equate to only .$ 4.25 per 500 grams! With careful handling and cool storage, this yeast may be repackaged for batch use. This is a one time, fixed sale price, no additional discounts are available. Spec sheet is attached to this posting. Contact: Eric Watson AlBevCon LLC craftbrewfreak@yahoo.com Fermentis Red Star Whisky Yeast.pdf
